How I Use It
I use this product for an end of the year competition. The setup is difficult because students have to add the teacher as a friend, the service must be paid for, and the students have to go through a multi-step process to share their app. The product is a good option for advanced students because they enjoy the challenge of working their way through the build. General populations like the product because of the sharing feature.
My Take
As a teaching tool, this product is in the development stage. There is no classroom feature where teachers can monitor their students progress, collect data, or assign grades. Also, there are no step-by-step lesson plans created for teachers who do not have time to develop a lesson themselves. Finally, the pricing for each lesson is prohibitive for teachers in middle school, who may serve up to 200 students.
